Neil Brophy, originally from Moulton, Northampton, has performed for many years on the festival circuit across Scandinavia, UK, Belgium, Germany & Holland with his band. His recent single release “The Record Collector” made a big impact on International Record Store Day and was aired on the Steve Lamacq show on BBC 6 Music.
With his self penned songs of travelling and revelry and his full power folk rock band , they never fail to lift the atmosphere and get the crowd in their hands. Always a memorable show. A perfect festival band. (See videos).
Neil is now based in Copenhagen with his band and over the past few years has slowly been tiptoeing his way back to the UK playing on a few festivals.
